Welcome- this is were I share articles, posts, book and workshop/conferences reviews, and the page with links to additional material for each business book that I published since 2013 (more details on my business experience).

Main focus of this website: cultural/organizational change and digital transformation, with articles, reviews of books and workshops/webinars/software, links to my own books.

This is what you will find in each option contained within the menu:

_:Society: EU-Italy-Turin
in this section, the social/political side
_:Citizen Audit
business number/information crunching skills applied to documents of common interest
_:Communication: Strumenti
a book on using social media for political and advocacy purposes, published in 2014, serialized
_:Glossary: Common sense
a different form of "positions papers" (with links to multimedia whenever relevant)
_books published/ongoing/reviews
in this subsection, both what I am writing, what I published, and my feed-back on some books that I read and can recommend
once in a while, some "milestones" in my writing planning and drafting
whenever I publish a book, I add a page; for GDPR and QuPlan, added also links to other material
a book that started as such in 2015, but eventually became a kind of "background excuse" to develop other concepts; I do not know yet if or ever will turn into a "normal" book- or I will simply keep spinning articles
as I worked since the 1980s across multiple industries, business domains, cultures, these mini-books started as a way to summarize some "focused ideas on a theme", to share before business activities as a common starting point- from 2003-2005 first, and 2013 on then, instead of being restricted to my prior business network, decided to share online (and also a paperbook, if you like)
suggested readings: I read a lot and continuously, but in this section I share only part of the books that I rate at least 3.5 out of 5
working in both cultural/organizational change and number crunching to support decision making for few decades, turns you also into an observer, developer, and storyteller of cultures (that I had before interested in archeology and cultural anthropolology, and some political negotiation experience, helped)
_elections, elections
collection of pages containing the articles about elections in Italy and Europe published since 2016
_organizational support concepts/tools
business and product concepts, both for research projects that I am working on, and shared as potential concepts, to allow all to use them (and nobody to patent, restrict, etc)
_Glossary: Common sense
a different form of "positions papers" (with links to multimedia whenever relevant)
section sharing data and concepts about data
data are everywhere- but access to data requires skills and competences; the aim of this section is to share concepts, datasets, and webapps to enable converting "open data" into information easy to access and reuse
a card for each key dataset (usually including also a search application)
_data items since 2019
full list of the datasets and associated analysis repositories released since 2019
